Get the Bug general manager Luther<br />

Salanoa says being part of the Get<br />

The Bug team will hopefully give him<br />

the skills to launch his own business<br />

career.<br />

“It's helped me do networking and get<br />

a taste for the real world and building<br />

skills for business.”<br />

He’s also developing his green thumb.<br />

"I have definitely taken more interest<br />

in gardening as the Bug Hub increases<br />

your garden's flowers and fruit."<br />

Luther says their growing business<br />

success could not have been possible<br />

without their mentor Peter Sykes.<br />

“Peter has given us the best support<br />

we could have asked for. He’s<br />

connected us to people who can help<br />

and gave us the bug for living more<br />

sustainably. If it wasn’t for him we<br />

wouldn’t be here.”<br />

Markets' music man<br />


Rain, hail or shine Andrew his loyal customers.<br />

Beer has been at the Mangere “It’s four or five hours a week<br />

Markets for the last twenty where you can capture quite<br />

years selling Pacific Island a good customer base,” he<br />

music. The Mangere resident says.<br />

loves what he sells and has Andrew is originally from the<br />

given many artists, both local Cook Islands and came here<br />

and overseas, a foothold in after high school. Despite<br />

the market.<br />

not being a musician himself,<br />

“It’s a hard industry,<br />

he’s had a lifelong passion<br />

particularly as our customers for music and at one stage<br />

are an older generation who owned three shops across<br />

are dwindling to some extent," South Auckland. And who's<br />

he says.<br />

his favourite artist right now?<br />

He says despite bad weather That would be Richard<br />

and rent fluctuations, he’s Parker.<br />

remained committed to the “Richard Parker plays a bit of<br />

Mangere Markets as it gives reggae and other stuff and<br />

him a chance to interact with he has a great voice.”<br />

Rubbish visit no waste<br />

Learning the harsh reality<br />

about how our rubbish gets<br />

sorted has inspired Lisa<br />

Kennedy and Liz Maera to<br />

change their wasteful ways.<br />

On a recent trip to the<br />

Waitakere Transfer Station,<br />

Lisa and Liz of Mangere<br />

East Family Service Centre<br />

Early Learning Centre were<br />

surprised to find out that<br />

rubbish isn’t sorted after<br />

leaving the kerbside. Along<br />

with other colleagues and<br />

locals who joined the trip,<br />

Lisa watched while rubbish<br />

trucks, vans and cars from<br />

all over Auckland converged<br />

on the transfer station, piling<br />

waste onto the mountain of<br />

rubbish at the site.<br />

The pair have wasted no time<br />

applying their learning, going<br />

“straight home to sort out the<br />

bins!”.<br />

They are also talking with<br />

other staff, children and<br />

parents about rubbish and<br />

looking at how recycling could<br />

be used at the centre for craft<br />

and science activities<br />
